The most radical looks motorcycles ever made

~Radical ONES~ Before we discuss about this unique motorcycle, maybe it's a good idea to know first what makes something look unique and said to be very radical. It's easy something to be unique and radical, just a matter to make it looks unusual and tends to be eccentric (out of the box) when compared to most of its kinds. Isn't that right?๐Ÿ˜„
The Mortagua Fighter 10 'Violent Dream' is the latest creation of Carlos Rodrigues and said to use a Honda 600 Shadow engine with a unique front-wheel drive system. (Picture from: LivingWithGravity)
Well, so are the two-wheeled vehicles that we will discuss this time. As quoted of Visordown, this unique bike named the Mortagua Fighter 10 'Violent Dream' is built to be a part of the fun of the Expo Moto 2022 motorcycle shows to see the weird things that creep between the lines of the motorcycle models attended there.
The unique motorbike is the work of Carlos Manuel Almeida Rodrigues which he did at a workshop based in Mortagua city in the north of Portugal. The creator was previously also known for his expertise in making such of a kind custom motorcycles. The first edition was built in 1995, and by now the looks have completely changed. This is truly one of the most aesthetically radical motorbikes you can find ever.

Even one of his past works, entitled the Mortagua Fighter 8 'Disturbed Cadaver' custom motorcycle powered by a Suzuki GSX R-1100 engine, won the title of 'Best of Streetfighter' at the grand event of the International Custombike Championship Germany (ICCG) in Bad Salzuflen, Germany back in the 2018.

Still quoted of the Visordown, the appearance of the Mortagua Fighter 10, which is the latest work of Carlos Rodrigues at first glance, seems to be inspired by one of the fictional fighter jets by the designer Project Aces (the developer of the Ace Combat video game), it's just a matter of pinning a wheel on either end.

Carlos Rodrigues has faithfully created this unique and impeccable line of futuristic style motorcycles with such intricate details which are generally described in the drawing of sharp and tapered lines of the world's aviation design that are done with the polish of his hand skills as a glassmaker with 25 years of experience.

Unfortunately, there is no information about technical matters such as the engine used and horsepower, torque it produces, as if it is not important. Maybe it could be said less prestige than the sensation presented by this motorcycle. However, that does not mean there is no information at all about it. As quoted of OtoPlus, the Mortagua Fighter 10 is said to use a Honda 600 Shadow engine with a front-wheel drive system.

It is not surprising to say that there is not a single custom motorcycle creation made as radical as this, which the creator has made in such a way as the series ranging from the Fighter 1 to the Fighter 10 over a period of almost 30 years, shows his high and classy level of creativity that non-creative ordinary people like us could not understand.
This strange motorbike literally might be able to create a strange driving sensation too. But clearly, it's not a motorcycle for cruising down the track, or for pushing the edges of scenic mountain roads. It's specially to be driven slowly, through a city or coastal town, at night, under yellowed artificial light, while people would turn their heads instantly and scorn its obnoxiously extreme appearance.

Kept spur your adrenaline on the power of the two-wheeled monster and stay alive with true safety riding. May God will forgive Your sins and so does the cops...... *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MORTAGUA FIGHTER | EXPOMOTO PORTO | LIVING WITH GRAVITY | SOYMOTERO.NET | VISORDOWN ]

Coolest Chrysler's supercar ever

~Coolest EVER~ For a bit of nostalgia by featuring article about a row of great supercars that ever made in the 21st century. The world of supercars is dominated by the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, McLaren, and so many others – but these are not the only players in the game. You might be surprised to learn that Chrysler, an American automaker also tested the waters of the supercar market in the early of this 2nd millenium.
The Chrysler ME Four-Twelve unveiled by the American automaker Chrysler back in the 2004. (Picture from: TopCarRating)
Back in 2004, Chrysler unveiled the ME Four-Twelve supercar, which was not a concept car but a prototype of a car that was slated to be put into production. The car debuted at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, and the Arizona International Auto Show that same year.

The Chrysler ME Four-Twelve supercar concept is considered as the most advanced car ever produced by the American automaker. It has a perfect combination of high-power engine, to-die-for looks, and great performance. To begin with something to be said about the looks. To say that the supercar looks great would be just an understatement. If you are a supercar lover and has a fantasy for a supercar style, this one will surely make your jaw drop out of awe.
Interior view of Chrysler ME Four-Twelve. (Picture from: MotorTrend)
Amazingly, the ME Four-Twelve supercar's body is made of carbon fiber, no wonder if it was very light. In fact, the carbon fiber and aluminum are the lightweight materials  are widely used to build a supercar concept. It is said that it took less than one year for Chrysler to come up with this such beauty. The supercar's body also completed with chrome-moly sub frames and stylish aluminum crush structures which not only adds to the style quotient, but also resulted into compliance with U.S. federal regulations for crash or impact testing. Overall, a solid supercar, but at the same time looks very stylish thanks to the tons of work that went into the conceptualization.

The interior is surprisingly spacious for a concept car that is only about 45 inches tall. There is a wide enough leg room and there is a large glass roof panels from the windshield to the rear header. The suspension consisting a group control of aluminum double wishbones, stainless steel push-rods, anti-roll bars, and assisted by a power-steering. All openings in the body of the supercar has been optimized to improve thermal performance. The spacious cockpit intelligently designed to accommodate comfortably even a taller people.
The Chrysler ME Four-Twelve is powered by a dynamic ME quad-turbo, V12 engine. (Picture from: TheSupercars.org)
Chrysler ME Four-Twelve supercar powered by a dynamic ME quad-turbo, V-12 engine that lives up to expectations. This kind of engine are taken care of by a high efficiency cooling system to ensures the engine stays cold all the time. The such engine capable produces an incredible 850 horsepower and 850 ft-lbs of torque, which allows it to accellerate from 0 to 60 mph (96.56 kph) in just 2.9 seconds and to 100 mph (160.93 kph) in just 6 seconds! Compare that with the Ferrari Enzo, which takes 3.1 seconds to hit the same speed-numbers!
Rear view of Chrysler ME Four-Twelve. (Picture from: MotorTrend)
All of that power is delivered to the wheels via a seven-speed Ricardo double-clutch transaxle with Formula One-style paddle shifters mounted on the steering column. Chrysler engineers calculated the top speed of the car to be approximately 399.12 kph or 248 mph (this has not been confirmed in the real-testing), enough to compete with other concept cars in its genre.

At this kind of speed, you would expect the system to double braking efficient. The braking system consists of a large 15-inch brake disc rotors and calipers six- piston mono-block. What this means is you can press the brake comfortably even at very high speed and sports cars will stop screeching. Disc brake rotors are carbon ceramic composite and the calipers are made of aluminum to improve performance.
Chrysler ME Four-Twelve supercar also features many active and passive aerodynamic equipment to give optimum performance at even very high speeds. There were only two ME Four-Twelves were ever built. Today, both cars is on display at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan. It’s a shame that this brilliant example of engineering and design was never put into production.๐Ÿ˜ญ *** [EKA [16022014] | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CHRYSLER | MOTOR TREND]

Pininfarina designed the sophisticated NAMX HUV featured with removable hydrogen capsules

~Hydrogen-Cells~ As We all have knew, if the gait from Pininfarina S.p.A. or Pininfarina, the famous Italian automotive design house is no longer in doubt. The long journey of the company founded by Battista 'Pinin' Farina in 1930 has been legendary by working on many projects commissioned by various renowned car brands in the world such as Ferrari, Maserati, Cadillac, Nash, Peugeot, Jaguar, Volvo, Alfa Romeo, MG, Cisitalia, Lancia, and many more.
NAMX and Pininfarina unveil the HUV, a hydrogen powered suv partially fueled by removable capsules, paving the way for a seamless and carbon-free experience of mobility. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
It should be noted that of the many brands that have worked with the Italian design house, it turn out not all of them are well-known brands, there are also new brands that have not been known to the public before. And one example is the new French automotive brand of NAMX, and known to be owned by Paris-based automotive startup was founded by Thomas de Lussac, together with Faouzi Annajah.
The NAMX HUV clearly seen the 'Italian' trait of Pininfarina and the ambition to subvert the paradigms of the future green mobility. (Picture from: AutoDaily)
Well, although the electric car market is not as hot as the electric-powered car market, it turns out that the hydrogen fuel-cell car market is also starting to get crowded, so the new French brand is interested in trying its luck here, by introducing a hydrogen-powered vehicle called NAMX HUV (Hydrogen Utility Vehicles) which is also the result of the design collaboration between those French startup and Pininfarina.
The NAMX HUV looks quite striking with a super large pentagon front grille featured with the grille's outline clearly visible through the crossed LED strip implementation at the front. (Picture from: BlackXperience)
As quoted from the Pininfarina.it, the collaboration-result vehicle carries an SUV style and has an aggressive appearance. How not, the environmentally friendly SUV looks quite striking with a super large pentagon front grille. Moreover, Pininfarina gives the grille's outline clearly visible through the crossed LED strip implementation at the front.

It is also clearly seen the 'Italian' trait of Pininfarina and the ambition to subvert the paradigms of the future green mobility. It could be said, that the NAMX HUV (Hydrogen Utility Vehicle) has a strong line and looks to the future of the automotive industry thanks to its patented hydrogen fuel-cells system, consisting of one fixed tank and six removable capsules, which guarantees the car driving over a total distance of 800 kilometers.
The NAMX HUV featured with six small hydrogen capsules such like this. (Picture from: MomoTrix)
Meanwhile, when it viewed from the side, the car looks so big with an 'X' shape element meets in the center line of the door. Not to forget the bottom of the car and the fenders are also equipped with black plastic cladding and bumpers strengthened the SUV's feels.

Perhaps the most interesting part of the car is at the rear. As You can see, there're many design elements that are enough to make the bottom crowded and the 'X' shape design at first glance reminiscent to similar one attached on the Lamborghini Siรกn FKP 37 and Terzo Millennio Concept.

This car also has another interesting parts just above the rear bumper. It can be seen clearly that NAMX intentionally exposed 6 horizontally lined hydrogen capsules. That's not only for aesthetics, these six fuel-cells are indeed a kind of hydrogen plug-n-play tanks that can be removed and replaced, or even filled easily if needed.

NAMX did intentionally make their hydrogen technology a major attraction of the car, and reportedly has been patented. As mentioned above, this fuel-cells technology consisting a large fixed hydrogen tank attached on the car coupled with 6 small, easily removable capsules, that's makes the car's recharging process as easy as swapping batteries on an electric-powered scooter. But that's a big challenge for Pininfarina, due to NAMX desires the presence of those 6 removable capsules should be integrated into the overall design of the car.

Unfortunately, NAMX did not reveal the capacity of the hydrogen tank yet.๐Ÿ˜ฅ But the French auto startup said that the HUV's drivetrain would produced power of 224 kW or 296 horsepower to drive the rear wheels and made it has an acceleration capability from still to 100 kph in 6.5 seconds and reached a top speed of 200 kph.

But for those of you who want a higher performance number, it turns out that NAMX has also prepared a more powerful version called GTH which will have a powerful drivetrain almost double than the standard version of 410 kw or 542 horsepower. Not only that, the configuration also turned into the All-Wheels Drive (AWD) system with acceleration performances to only 4.5 seconds and the top speed increased to 250 kph.
As mentioned earlier this fuel cell technology can guarantee the car driving range as far as 800 km with all its fuel-cells full. Unfortunately the French startup not explained how much capacity can be filled by the six removable capsules.๐Ÿ˜ฏ 

Furthermore, NAMX will launching the HUV for the first time at the 2022 Paris Motor Show (Mondial de l'automobile) and targeting to be able send into the market soon in 2025 with the price tags ranging from € 65,000 or around Rp.990 million to the most expensive ones reaches € 95,000 or around Rp1.44 billion. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | PININFARINA | NAMX.TECH | BREAKINGLATEST.NEWS | HYDROGEN-CENTRAL | AUTODAILY | H2.LIVE ]

ELVIS gives the new hopes of the blinds able to see

~The Blind's HOPES~ Maybe many of us have ever watched many science-fiction movies such 'Star Wars: The Old Republic' that feature individuals who use technologically advanced implants in the head that are connected to the sense of sight so that they can provide above average vision capability to the user. Thank God maybe not far from now this kind of technology soon become a reality, thanks to the brain implant technology researches carried out by scientists from around the world nearly have the positive results.

One of such as researches carried out by Russian scientists at the ‘Sensor-Tekh’ laboratory and the Foundation For the Support of the Deaf and Blind - ‘So-edinenie’ to develop the first neural brain implant technology that can provide vision for those who have lost their sense of sight or those who are born blind called ELVIS. Indeed, the name accompanies this advanced technology heard so unique, and immediately remind us of the King of Rock'n Roll, Elvis Presley. Giving such name to this device has nothing to do with the famous American artist, but is an acronym for ELectronic VISion.
The Russian scientists at the 'Sensor-Tekh' laboratory and the Foundation For The Support of the Deaf and Blind-'So-edinenie' developed a neural brain implant called ELVIS that could provide vision to people who have lost sight. (Picture from: RussiaBeyond)
While if we've seen from its shape, this tool looks like one of the head devices in the 'Cyberpunk 2077' video game that can provide additional capabilities for its users. As quoted of Russia Beyond, this advanced device has been presented at the Skolkovo Innovation Center, Moscow around June 2021 ago.
The ELVIS technology could be worked after the doctor managed to implant the device into the cerebral cortex or the part of the brain functioned as a sensory information center and decision-making region for motoric output. (Picture from: RussiaBeyond)
Not known yet the results. If it's according to plan, then the technology will be implemented on blind people around the world to get vision starting in 2027. It could be one proof that such a kind of the science fiction devices also able to realize into the real world. As quoted of the Russia Beyond, the ELVIS technology could be worked after the doctor managed to implant the device into the cerebral cortex or the part of the brain functioned as a sensory information center and decision-making region for motoric output.
The ELVIS implant device works by using electrodes as a connector to the brain parts that function to control the vision. (Picture from: RussiaBeyond)
According to researchers of the Sensor-Tech Laboratory related how the ELVIS implant device works by using electrodes as a connector to the brain parts that function to control the vision. Later, the patients for several months will be given a headband equipped with a camera that can send images directly to the brain not through the eyes. Furthermore, this Russian-made brain implant is said would be very suitable for people aged between 24 to 65 years because it requires a fully formed adult brain (so the children are not allowed to use it), and also should be replaced in every 10 years with the new ones.
The ELVIS implant device is slated to enter production in 2027 with the initial cost for operation processes and installation of the camera are estimated RUS Ruble 10 million, or about US $138,000. (Picture from: RussiaBeyond)
And for now, the ELVIS itself is in the animal testing phase and will continue on monkeys. As for humans themselves, the testing will be carried out in 2023 by involving several prevoliously prepared volunteers. This advanced technology is slated to enter production in 2027 with the initial cost for operation processes and installation of the camera are estimated RUS Ruble 10 million, or about US $138,000. Later, after this device is included in the community support and covered by insurance program, might be the cost can reduced by half.
According to the head of the ELVIS project Denis Kuleshov, Director of the Sensor-Tech Laboratory, this Russian-developed brain implant was not the only one in the world, there are about 10 similar studies currently being worked by scientists all over the world. (Picture from: RussiaBeyond)
According to the head of the ELVIS project Denis Kuleshov, Director of the Sensor-Tech Laboratory, this Russian-developed brain implant was not the only one in the world, there are about 10 similar studies currently being worked by scientists all over the world, and one of them with the biggest progress is such currently being worked by a team of researchers from Spain (CORTIVIS), the Netherlands (NESTOR), and Australia (Monash University).
Kuleshov himself explained that the difference between ELVIS and similar other devices has the low offered bionic vision resolution. While the Russian-made ELVIS uses a combination of bionics and artificial intelligence so that the blind can use electronic vision optimally. In addition, the other project uses technology that only projects flashes of light onto the cerebral cortex, while the ELVIS has Artificial Intelegence (AI) working to assist the system in identifying the object, or what it resembles.

"This will also aid our patients at the rehabilitation stage, allowing us to improve the learning process associated with seeing again after the surgery," he adds as qouted of the Russia Beyond. Hopefully this sophisticated devices can be realized soon and able to help millions of blind people get their sight back. What do you think?

~3rd EVs~ Lately, the development of electric-powered vehicles is seen very rapidly, many automotive manufacturers from all over the world are competing to develop these kind of vehicles. This is intended not only as a form of concern for environmental issues, but as an effort to anticipate the depletion of conventional fuel availability as well.
Fisker Inc. has announced Project Ronin, the company's third vehicle after its Fisker Ocean SUV and Fisker PEAR. (Picture from: Businesswire)
This also prompted the American automaker named Fisker Inc. to present their newest line of electrified rides was capable  to carry four passenggers including their luggage inside the cabin, and have an increadible range as well. As we all know that the Fisker Ronin will be the third addition to Fisker’s EV range, next to the new Fisker Ocean SUV, and the upcoming PEAR.

According to Henrik Fisker, CEO of Fisker Inc. that his company' new electric-powered vehicles intended to become the production version electrified vehicles with the longest range ever made in the world with the target range of 600 miles (966 km), and fitted with three electric motors offering all-wheel-drive, and an estimated 0-60 mph (0-97 kph) acceleration close to the 2-second mark.
"Project Ronin will be a showcase for our company's internal engineering, powertrain and software capabilities," said Henrik Fisker as quoted of CarScoops. And according to latest teaser, the car would be realized as a fully electric four-seat convertible sports GT.

Furthermore, the Fisker's CEO stated that he had assigned the company's engineering team to apply the most advanced and lightest materials that would later have an effect on range, performance, and the overall driving experience of the mentioned electric-powered vehicle.
The latest teaser revealed the Fisker’s Project Ronin is actually a fully electric four-seat convertible sports GT. (Picture from: KabarOto)
In addition, to extend the range as far as possible, Fisker' Project Ronin is said to be using active aerodynamic technology and an innovative battery design to be integrated into the vehicle's structural packages.

Meanwhile, to make the car as comfortable as possible for the driver and all passengers, then the car featured with a such unique styles that makes it easy to get in and out of the car. Once inside the car, passengers are greeted by a luxurious and sustainable interior that sets a new "advanced design direction" for the brand.
The code name for the Fisker' future electric car refers to the action movie back in 1998 starring Robert DeNiro which features some fun car chase scenes of several European cars, such as the BMW 535i, Peugeot 406, and Mercedes 500 E.

Unfortunately, the Fisker' Project Ronin prototype will only be revealed by the American automaker in August 2023 with its production starting in the second half of 2024.๐Ÿ˜‘ Furthermore, Fisker is also targeting the initial price of this electric car below $200,000. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | FISKER INC. | CARSCOOPS | BUSINESSWIRE ]
